“We invest in the community by creating a physical presence,” Thurston states in a press release. “For more than a year, we have been working to bring The Bank of Tampa’s brand to Plant City. Now that we have a physical presence here, right in the heart of downtown Plant City, I look forward to watching us become an integral part of the Plant City community.”
